SEAT has revealed prices and specs for its all-new Leon, ahead of first deliveries in March 2013

Prices for the new SEAT Leon have been announced. The five-door family hatch will cost from £15,670 when order books open on 1 October for first deliveries in March 2013.

The Leon prices were confirmed by SEAT’s President, James Muir, who added that the Leon range will expand to include three-door and estate models in the future.

Three trim levels will be available from launch: S, SE and FR. The entry-level Leon S gets air conditioning, an MP3-compatible six-speaker CD player and Bluetooth, for hands free phone calls.

Mid-spec Leon SE gets a leather-wrapped steering wheel, front fog lights and SEAT’s XDS electronic differential lock system, while range-topping FR models get 17-inch alloys, a sporty bodykit, sports seats and sports suspension.

Buyers will also be able to pick from an extensive list of options, including 18-inch alloy wheels, full leather upholstery, satellite navigation, and full LED headlamps.

Like the all-new VW Golf, the new Leon is built on the VW Group’s MQB platform. It will be offered with three petrol and two diesel engines, with highlights including the most efficient 104bhp 1.6-litre diesel Leon Ecomotive - which returns 74.3 mpg and 99g/km - and a 181bhp 2.0-litre diesel, which can complete the 0-62mph sprint in 7.5 seconds.
